Now is a good time to have a look at our main page again since we’ve finally been adding some of those articles I wrote when we returned from Nepal. I spent most of November writing up short pieces on any subject we could come up with on our experience in the Hindu Kingdom. There is a long list of content articles to add to the site, and we just added about 30 of them to the menu. Not counting the blog, the photo gallery, and the Nepali news, there are 65 content pages on our site. There are still another 46 pages to add to the menu, but you can already see the list is getting to be a bit overwhelming, as far as layout and the sitemap are concerned. In between other projects we’re thinking of how to organize the menu layout so that it will be well organized and will convey exactly how extensive our coverage is. Having over 120 menu items will be pretty overwhelming. I’m very excited to get this added to the site so that I can share the wonderful ideas, history, and the unexpected surprises of Nepal.
Of course this blog is an ongoing project. By no means am I finished with relaying the details of our experiences, and there is a great deal more to uncover about the culture of the Sherpa people, and even of hikers and mountaineering. I’m still new to both of these ways of life, and there’s a lot for me to learn. I don’t even know what I don’t know, so I’ll continue to post my entries here. I still keep in contact with Pema Dorje Sherpa, and it has been our goal to learn from him as much as possible about his life and to pass on our accounts. He is a fascinating individual, and it’s amazing to hear of all the experiences he has had. He has retired from the seriously dangerous adventures above 18,000 feet, but his life and livelihood are still found on the hiking trails of the Himalayas.hiking boots nepal sherpa culture Trekking in Nepal
